Rugby is deeply committed to the environment and supports the continued utilization of environmentally friendly products in its distribution business. With respect to that commitment, Rugby maintains an association with FSC. All 13 Rugby locations are FSC Chain of Custody certified (SCS‑COC‑001211) which means that any and all wood panel products that are FSC certified are available through Rugby via stock on hand, or by special order.
In addition, Rugby is in compliance with California Air Resources Board Regulations (CARB), stocks specific panel products that contain No Added Urea Formaldehyde (NAUF) and takes all measures to ensure that all of our vendors are in compliance with the Lacey Act Amendment. All of our decorative surfacing products, including laminate and solid surface are Greenguard certified.
Our “Green Products Program” provides the highest assurance that Rugby will supply you with environmentally responsible wood and surfacing products that meet all of the stringent demands of specifiers and end users alike. These products are available in particleboard, MDF, melamine, plywood, lumber, decorative laminates and solid surfacing / quartz products.
